Born today, you have one weakness that is likely to plague you throughout your lifetime: You are unable to judge yourself accurately in most situations, often thinking that you are better than you are at many endeavors. This doesn't mean, of course, that you are not good at any! On the contrary, there are one or two things that you do better than almost anyone, but you may not know it for quite some time. As a result, you may spin your wheels day after day, working on things that are best left to others. Once you do recognize your true calling, you are likely to shine quite brightly, indeed.
What you do have going for you is an understanding of the value of honest feedback, and as a result you will value the friendship of those who tell it like it is -- even when it is not really something you want to hear! Though you enjoy praise as much as anyone, you understand the importance of constructive criticism.
Also born on this date are: C. Thomas Howell, actor; Larry Bird, basketball player; Tom Waits, singer and actor; Johnny Bench, baseball player; Ellen Burstyn, actress; Ted Knight, actor; Eli Wallach, actor; Louis Prima, musician and singer.
